Adoption of iOS 14 has reportedly passed the 90% mark.
According to analysis by MixPanelIOS 14 now runs over 90% of iPhones and iPads compatible with the latest version of iOS and iPadOS.
As you can see from the graphic, acceptance initially increased as users switched to the iPhone 12 Lineup that came preinstalled with iOS 14. It then flattened a bit before skyrocketing over the winter as more people updated their devices and updated the software on their current devices.
With this development, Apple has apparently managed to 90% hit iOS 14 rollout in less than six months. This is an incredible feat and one of the reasons developers are interested in creating apps for the App Store. Apple ensures that older devices will be compatible with the latest version of iOS for as long as possible, and allows developers to take advantage of new technologies that reach more users.
While it’s not sure why users upgraded to iOS 14 so quickly, it could be argued that it is one of the largest software releases on the iPhone in years. Features like widgets, the app library, and home screen customization allowed users to customize their iPhone more than ever.
iOS 15 should be announced at WWDC on June 7, 2021. In addition to announcing the latest software for the iPhone, Apple should also be releasing the latest versions of iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS. The company could also announce hardware, including rumored Apple silicon iMac and Macbook Pro.
